Has anyone seen this?!

So has anyone seen this? It’s an HBO show that is in its third season. What this show is, is a five night series of half hour episode. Gabriel Byrne plays a psychiatrist who meets with a patient each night of the week. Each night he meets with a separate patient. So on Mondays he meets with patient 1, Tuesday meets with patient 2, and by the time we get to Friday night, Byrne meets with his therapist and talks about all the disgust and contempt he has for his patients.

This is a very interesting show that deals with the human character. This is the slowest burn of a character study I have ever seen, but when the show starts rolling, it’s amazingly beautiful. We don’t see much of Gabriel Byrne’s wife, because most of his screen time he is listening to his patients and we’re just waiting for his anticipation. When he meets with his therapist on Friday, he’s like a new person. He’s not calm and in control; he’s unleashed and on fire.

This is my new obsession.

Everybody relax, Frank's here. After going to film school at Columbia College Chicago, Frank decided to underachieve with his vast knowledge of film into a career in civil service. Frank had a brief stint as a film blogger, and then he met the heterosexual love of his life, Nick Clement. The two instantly bonded over their love from everything to Terence Malick to THE EXPENDABLES films. Some of Frank's favorite filmmakers are Terence Malick, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Sylvester Stallone, Oliver Stone and Spike Lee. Some of his favorite films are THE TREE OF LIFE, STAR WARS (all of them), BAD LIEUTENANT, THE THING and ALL THAT JAZZ. Frank spends his free time with his dog Roger, collecting any Star Wars collectible he can find and trying to finish his pretentious, first person narrative novel(la), LARGE MEN IN SMALL CARS..
